Rookie wins Premier Lizard Canary Show

On his debut at The Classic Lizard Canary Association show, Novice Essex exhibitor Darren Keeley benched best bird in show with a dark coloured Non Cap Gold Hen. Darren fought off many quality Lizards in a show which saw the highest Novice entry for decades. Darren’s winning Lizard was awarded Best Lizard in show, Best Novice and Best Non Cap. This jaunty little bird, displayed lovely spangles and a steadiness that caught the eye of Judge John Martin.

The Lion’s share of awards however was secured by David Newton. David staged Best Champion with a Broken Cap Gold Hen, 2nd Best Champion with a Clear Cap gold cock and 3rd best champion Lizard with a non-cap Gold Cock. Daniel Richmond won best champion over year with a Silver hen.  Completing the awards in the Novice section were Tony Horton with his clear cap silver cock that took 2nd Best Novice, 3rd Best Novice went to Wayne Elton who staged a broken cap gold hen.

Other awards were, Best Novice Over year Riddle & Page, Biggest Champion class winner D. Newton, and Biggest Novice class Winner, Tony Horton.

Thanks go to Karen Wright for her hard work in the kitchen. Next year show is at the same venue, Roade Village Hall Northants on 5th November.
